One man's futile quest to live in harmony with his media.
Thursday, June 9, 2011
At the recommendation of a couple of sources that I trust, I gave Kick-Ass a try. I can see why some people really love it, but to me it was merely okay. The movie was a mix of outlandish and brutally gritty, and while some of the action scenes were pretty good, it just didn't grab me as much as some other superhero movies have. It was, however, more enjoyable than Watchmen, which I'd put in the same category. If you think you'll like it from the trailers, odds are you will. If you don't, it's probably not for you. Me? I don't think I ever need to watch this again. The content was a bit gratuitous for my taste.
